NFL Rumors: Jon Gruden Coaching The Eagles?

Early this morning we came across a rumor that suggested that Jon Gruden would be taking over as the Philadelphia Eagles head coach while current head coach Andy Reid would be let go.

The idea seems crazy and pretty far fetched which is why we chose to hold off on this one until we were able to find a credible source that could either confirm or deny the idea.

The Eagles have since released a statement addressing the idea and as expected, Andy Reid will be coaching the team next season.

“Early this morning we have received several inquiries regarding rumors regarding Andy Reid and Jon Gruden, This was simply a rumor and there is no basis to it at all. It is simply not true.”

Supposedly the rumor was started by ex-Eagles fullback Kyle Eckel who had posted the idea on his Facebook.
